Spoilers: Teenager Simon falls for Shona in Corrie?

It’s not unusual for a vulnerable teenager to develop a crush when someone shows them genuine care and kindness and Simon Barlow (Alex Bain) is all over the place since the death of Oliver in Coronation Street.

With Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) throwing her all into planning the memorial ceremony at Victoria Gardens, Simon finds himself with nowhere to turn.

Step forward Shona Ramsey (Julia Goulding) – someone who has also had a hell of a year. But is Simon set to develop a crush on her?

Simon confides in Shona how he’s dreading giving a reading at Oliver’s funeral. Shona assures him he’ll be fine and just to speak from the heart. Simon’s buoyed by her words.

He is clearly enjoying her company and it gives him a lift and, before long, he offers to make her a playlist.

With Shona having suffered a brain injury, her grasp of signals and etiquette is something she struggles with so she may well not pick up on the fact that he may have a schoolboy crush on her.

But as she supports him, could she soon get herself into an awkward situation? And with Leanne pouring everything into her grief and neglecting what Simon is going through, will she end up pushing him to seek a maternal figure of support in Shona?

As Simon and Shona enter risky territory, will Simon have his heart broken? And will Leanne see that the teen needs her care at this time too as he is also struggling?
